As part of its annual College Counseling program, the Funhouse Commons will be hosting an event for parents with prospective college students on Monday, Sept. 30 starting at 6:30 p.m. There will be pie, coffee, and interesting discussion at the Orcas Public School Library.
“Life After High School” will feature Adam Faber, financial advisor and financial education specialist. He will be discussing financial aid strategies; tax issues affecting savings plans, college funding options and more. Arlene Prince will present current trends in college admissions and advise on how best to support potential college applicants.
The Funhouse and Orcas Island High School are teaming up for the annual “Futures Fair” on Tuesday, October 1. For the seventh year in a row, The Funhouse is hosting professional college counseling consultants. Prince and Nola Lynch will offer presentations for sophomores and up. They will focus on college admission, high school curricular choices, standardized test performance, college choices, the college application process, and specifics every potential college student should know.
The college counseling consultants and financial education specialists will also be offering one-on-one advisory sessions throughout the Futures Fair.
While there is no cost for attending these sessions, the Funhouse suggests a donation of $25 to help defray the costs. Call Krista at 376-7177 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up.
